As some of you may know, there is a new documentary focusing on the Harry Potter fandom called “We Are Wizards.” This documentary has been described by the film makers as a piece that “tracks the influential figures leading the creative subculture surrounding the popular series. The film follows a set of individuals ranging from web journalists, authors, artists, filmmakers and musicians, as they enhance and expand the Harry Potter story, often in unexpected ways. WE ARE WIZARDS is a portrayal of creative fans with a common goal: to make their voices heard.”

This film features some familiar faces, including Paul and Joe from “Harry and the Potters,” Brian and Brad from “Draco and the Malfoys” and Matt from “The Whomping Willows.” Also interviewed extensively for the film are others such as artist Brad Neely (Wizard People, Dear Readers) and our own Melissa Anelli. Made by film makers Josh Koury and Gerald Lewis, “We Are Wizards” will be screening at the following film festivals in April, with some events to feature appearances and performances from some of the wizard rock bands. Dates of note are as follows:
